A wonderful read Norm, so thanks for putting in the time and effort on this!
My only option is a smal kitchen table to do some painting and modelling. Cutting bigger stuff up etc I use the garage or the workshop at work. If only I had a permanent space set aside for such stuff!18/12/2019 at 21:38 in reply to: It's here! Napoleon's Armee du Nord of 1815 in 6mm #128263
Great work! Very impressive to see them all line up.
Those are fantastic looking armies!
Pretty damned cool.
Wow, if that’s a store cum cafe, that’s pretty awesome!
Jigsaw gets my vote as our son has additional needs and has benefited from charities such as this in the past.
Blimey, that Arnhem game is incredible!!!
That’s a wonderful ‘photo and lovely painting and miniatures.
Lovely looking game as always.
Cracking game once again!
Now I don’t mind the ‘Old School’ look at all, as for me there is an elgant simplicity to it. Sometimes less is more.01/12/2019 at 13:45 in reply to: Battle of Cannae solo report 2'x2' table with own rules on blog #127438
Nice to read another AAR and I have just downloaded the rules too. I hope to have a read through in the next day or so and maybe even a simple game.30/11/2019 at 11:19 in reply to: Battle of the Vorskla River – Devon Wargames Group #127375
Lovely looking game.
It does seem high for a metal figure, even these days, but couldn’t be 100% certain. I have known and do know some gamers who wouldn’t bat an eyelid at paying that sort of cost. One gamer I’ve met paid over £400 for one 28mm building that he had custom made, so I imagine £6 per figure would be OK to him. Each to their own, but I’m glad I moved to 10mm a good few years ago.
Lovely looking game.
Damn it! Will be in post op recovery from a hernia. Hope you have a good show.
A friend of a friend of mine used to make some of the wagons for Rod. Not sure if he still does. Either way a fantastic set up.
Wonderful, but the wrong scale for me.
Wonderful work yet again Piers!
The thing to remember with SLA resins are that they are designed for prototyping, not long term use. The old resins used to be very hygroscopic and warp incredibly easily as a result. The new ones are much better, but still I would much prefer to use metal or injection moulded models, purely for their durability.11/11/2019 at 08:08 in reply to: Copãceni, Cluj County, Transylvania, 4th October 1944 #126281
Lovely looking game, but the Die Gods certainly abandoned the Germans!
I’ll be playing with 10mm and you can easily play on smaller grids, subject to base sizes of course.09/11/2019 at 10:27 in reply to: Indian Mutiny, Sharp Practice – Devon Wargames Group #126224
Great looking game but the British leaving the Ladies to their fate? What will the press say about this back home in Blighty?09/11/2019 at 07:38 in reply to: Battle of Bagradas solo report 2'x2' table with own rules on blog #126205
Lovely to see a game played on a small table, which is all that many of us can achieve. The figures looked great too.
Lovely looking table set up.05/11/2019 at 13:49 in reply to: The Cassinga Raid, Angola 4th May 1978 (My 2019/2020 Demo Game) #125952
Wonderful looking table!
It was OK, but didn’t really grab me, probably because I and my daughter thought that James McAvoy and Ruth Wilson were miscast. Looking forward to part 2 which should hopefully pick up the pace a bit.
A sad loss and a true gent.
Sometimes I do, but nowadays only with the rulesets I like and play. Before I would have bought new rules etc, only never to really get to play them.
Wonderful work as always Piers.
Very nice work and I agree it works better with 15mm figures.29/10/2019 at 19:57 in reply to: Happy Halloween Diorama with 1970's Ral Partha Classic Monsters #125492
I still have the crouching werewolf in its original Humbrol paint finish from the 1970’s.28/10/2019 at 18:41 in reply to: What Fantasy Rules Offer Battles and Light Role Play? #125422
Dragon Rampant springs to mind.
That’s very nice Norm!
10mm is my preferred ‘scale’ these days and fortunately the Pendraken forum caters for most of my needs. Facebook which I’ve recently joined has several groups that cover 10mm and 6mm. However from my admittedly limited perspective, 28mm is so dominant, whether on the internet or at shows etc. I’m still amazed that many gamers are surprised at how good 6mm and 10mm games can be from a visual point of view, alongside the relatively small space they take up. Sometimes I get the feeling that it is not ‘real wargaming’ unless it is 28mm. Shame really.
As Norm said, little bits of free time are often taking with browsing websites, Blogs etc, mainly due to my painting space being the kitchen table. so my painting can be hit and miss due to trying to find time in there that fits in around the family and having enough energy after work. Gaming is normally mid-week with a friend, but solo gaming has fallen away of late due to lack of motivation.
Cracking terrain and figures!
